There is no substitute for traveling. It is one thing to study Prague (or any other place for that matter) and quite another to actually be there. The day that this picture was taken, beside Prague Castle, a quartet was playing the Voltava. It is essentially the theme of Prague. It overwhelms you with emotion. Break out of your shell, travel and see what you’ve been reading about. It makes all the difference in the world.
My father used to say that some of the most educated people he knew were also some of the most unintelligent people he knew.
